White Horse Tavern Restaurant Review:

This vintage bar has quenched the thirsts of such luminaries as Dylan Thomas---by far its most notorious regular---Jack Kerouac and Bob Dylan. In the afternoon, you still can find yourself in the company of writers, actors and musicians who live in the West Village neighborhood. But the nights, which extend to 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, belong to the twenty-something crowd. The White Horse Tavern’s standard bar food won’t inspire a masterpiece, though the burgers aren’t bad. You can also find a decent bowl of beef chili, occasional daily specials of soups and salads, wedge potato fries, jalapeño poppers, and a satisfying BLT. When it’s quiet, it’s a good place to sit and contemplate a lost love, and in the summer the outdoor picnic tables are prime people-watching perches---perfect for whiling away a lazy Sunday afternoon.
